We recently reported on an alliance between four companies that has successfully 3D printed heart structures in a weightless environment . As the first installment of our regular new feature where we put one big question to one really smart person, we asked Euguene D.
Burgeoning interest in metal 3D printing has caused some changes in the metal powder industry. Recently specific industries..
If you have a 3D printing project, you surely had the o […] The post How will Sculpteo’s options impact my 3D printing cost? appeared first on Sculpteo Blog – 3D Printing News and Trends .
We often get asked this question: “What is the best 3D modeling software?” The ugly truth is, “It depends.” We can’t tell you which software you should use.
Earlier in March, MakerBot held a panel about teaching startup culture in schools at SXSWedu 2016. We’re excited to have been placed on the Panel Picker to return to SXSWedu 2017, but need your vote to get us there.
Harvard engineers have come up with a robot octopus that is made entirely of soft materials, is autonomous, and requires no tether to operate. The Octobot combines 3D printing, mechanical engineering, and microfluidics to create what could be the first in a new generation of soft, autonomous machines.
For almost a century, the basement of a medical building at the Australia’s University of Melbourne has been home to a mummified human head of unknown origin. Now, using CT scans, 3D printing, forensic science and sculpture, a multi-disciplinary team has reconstructed the face of a young Egyptian woman who lived and died over 2,000 years ago, in an attempt to learn more about her life, death, health and diet.
Nanotechnology, like 3D printing, is one of the areas i […] The post 3D Printed Nanotechnology: how do those two technologies intertwine? appeared first on Sculpteo Blog – 3D Printing News and Trends .

While the current generation of industrial robots is primarily made of metal, the research community has been getting interested in the potential for soft-bodied robots. These have a number of advantages, such as being easy to customize via 3D printing and providing a flexibility that lets them squeeze through tight spaces
